Share Our Strength is ending hunger and poverty in the U.S. and abroad, through our campaigns, like No Kid Hungry, which will end childhood hunger in the United States, and Cooking Matters, which helps low-income families learn to shop and cook healthier.
We aren’t alone in that important work. We rely on the financial support of companies, restaurants, charitable foundations and ordinary Americans.
We know that earning and keeping your trust is critical, so we want to show you exactly where your donations go.
In the 2017 fiscal year, our total revenues were $56.18 million and our operating expenses were $51.06 million. Here’s how we raised and spent that money:

Share Our Strength is committed to efficiency and transparency. In applying the accounting standards from the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) related to joint costs of informational materials and activities that include a fundraising appeal, Share Our Strength identified activities as program, management and general, and fundraising in the following categories: a) education and awareness about hunger and food insecurity and b) volunteer recruitment, mobilization and management. Taste of the Nation, No Kid Hungry Dinners, Chefs Cycle, and the like are platforms or vehicles used to accomplish one or more of the goals defined above (education and awareness, volunteers). As such, the activities performed for each platform may be program-specific, fundraising, management and general, or joint (i.e., a combination of fundraising and program). These efforts help advance our mission to end hunger and poverty in the U.S. and abroad. As a nonprofit organization that is exempt from federal taxation, we ensure our donors’ money is spent as efficiently and effectively as possible
